    A cush drive is just rubber isolators that displace a drive sprocket hub and a rim hub. It takes any shock out of a chain drive system, and is really only useful on bikes used on the road, as dirt does the same job by it's inherent slipperyness.

    They're a good upgrade on motards, but any other bikes you'd want one on would already have one. Probly. Maybe.

      1, rubber bushing in rear hub to negate vibration which is transferred from chain to gearbox...hence damage.. kinda like a shock absorber...
      2, road wheels,
      3, new hub !
      4, not really...

        his is a good pic of it,



        the rubber bits in the hub absorb gear changes and other jarring movements

          What about the one in the clutch basket I hear you say?
          4-strokes have one real advantage over 2-strokes. Like the "big bang" theory in street bikes, the firing cycles are spaced longer, letting the tire hook up better on loose ground. And I'm sorry if I have hurt any 2-strokes feelings, but what do I care?

                    I just bought an old XT600 for the long rides that involve a lot of tar, "cush hub"
                    The other option was to get the "cush hub" rear wheel set up for my WR450!!!! Expensive and I am still stuck with the narrow hard seat of the WR....
                    Still keen to eventually set up the old WR450 with a "spoked cush hub" not keen on those alloy ones in the bush...
                    Anyone got a spoked rim with cush drive for sale, to suit the wr????????

                          I'm pretty sure that Talon make a cush drive hub to suit just about anything.
